Yihoo we have reached 1000 followers! 🤩 Hello new followers! Thank you for following - it's great to connect with so many of you from all over the globe. Here's a little bit about us
The Southern Counties Costume Society (SCCS) was formed in 1995 to bring together people interested in all aspects of textiles, clothing construction, accessories and ornamentation across the centuries. Whilst our in person activities are held throughout Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Sussex, Surrey and London during lockdown we have successfully launched an online programme of events and held our annual study weekend online enabling us to keep connected with our members and make new exciting connections worldwide. This means our membership has gone global!
The exchange of ideas and knowledge is always an enjoyable part of our events.
Period and vintage dress, theatrical costumes, ethnic clothing, button making, re-enactment costumes, conservation and care of textiles, war-time austerity and haute couture have all featured in the Society’s programmes. Email updates on events and exhibitions are circulated regularly. Members receive three newsletters each year compiled from their contributions. These include articles and information about visits, events, exhibitions, useful websites and suppliers.
To find out more please head to our website - link in bio membership is just £10 a year. #historyofdress #fashionthroughthedecades #fabricaddict #couture #dress #costume #design #textiledesign #sewing #sewersofinstagram #ootd #historicclothing #embroidery #historylovers #reenactment #buttonsandbows #threads #reenactment #onlineevents #theartofdress #tailoring #vintage #sustainableclothing

Happy birthday William Morris 🎂 La Belle Iseult 1858 @tate
This is the only completed easel painting that William Morris produced. It is a portrait in medieval dress of Jane Burden, whom Morris married in April 1859. The picture has been identified in the past as Queen Guenevere, partly owing to the fact that Morris published his first volume of poetry, The Defence of Guenevere, in March 1858. However, recent research has established convincingly that the picture is intended to represent Iseult mourning Tristram's exile from the court of King Mark. #williammorris #artsandcrafts #artsandcraftsmovement #fashionthroughtheages #fashioninart #historyofart #historyoffashion #fashion #guenevere #medioeval
